    I'd love to see Scott the crook gone. Hopefully, this will do the trick and, at the same time, bring in some much needed tax revenue.

    It's a good thing California didn't try this vote during their governors election. Lol... Most of our retired people will kill this thing even if some of the younger Tea Party/Libertarian types might see this as good change. They see the Dem flip-flopper Chrit for governor as a nonstarter....

    It just hit me how little I know about politics in my own state. Scott is a Republican who is essentially disliked by mostly everyone, right?

    He got off on the wrong foot with his attempt to steal FF's and other union types' pentions...

    Is there anything that you won't try to put a "FNS-esque" spin on? You remind me of Carl Rove when he was in denial about Ohio being lost during the last Presidential election

    All reforendums should be held separately, so voter confusion of one issue cannot be the reasoon for swaying voters to vote for a man they would have other wise voted against.

    The reforendum is the new tool in the Leftists' tool box of deceit. We see that and I hope we nip that in te bud or out do the Left's attempts to skew the real issues at stake...

    Facts are a nasty little thing.. Aren't they. And, I can't stand Karl Rove.

    In a separate referendum I'd vote for it. But if we have to include voting for flip-flop Crist... no thank you.

    Are you saying that a vote for whether to legalize medical marijuana and a vote for governor can't be on the same ballot because it's confusing to people?

    well if nobody likes him he must be doing something right. I like him. He isn't a politician. That is a bonus in my book.

    That's really part of it, moreso it confuses their (candidates) other issues. Not sure how the Supreme court would rule on it though.

    you might be surprised by the number of retired people that are realizing that a little brownie is a lot better for their inflammation, blood pressure, and pain than all those pills they have to take. no more Xanax required either.

    It looks like you don't mind turning a blind eye to Scott's egregiously crooked past.

    I just talked to a friend of mine whose brother has stage 4 prostate cancer. She is taking care of him in his last days which seem to be getting close. I could have sworn she told me they took him off of morphine and had him on a combination of something different along with medical marijuana. I was going to ask her more but we got off on something else and it slipped my mind. They are here in Florida.

    Depends on whether the (R)s get on the right side of this. And given their "conservative" principals, they should.

    However, I'd be curious to see some examples of Scott as a crook. I wasn't thrilled when he got elected, but I have to admit he's done a pretty good job.

    Not really. They want to continue to suck the federal teat called the War on Drugs and Pot is the low-hanging fruit.
